This tragic photo shows a heroic police officer from Brighton, Colorado, comforting a little girl at the scene of a car accident where her father was killed. 6 people, including 4 children, were thrown from an SUV at 9:30 a.m. on I-76, though only the father died. The oldest child was five years old and the youngest was an infant, and only the infant was in a car seat or wearing a seat-belt. Witnesses reported that the vehicle lost control when one of its rear tires blew-out.

73 percent of passengers wearing seat-belts who were involved in deadly crashes survived, according to a 2003 study. It’s estimated that seat-belts have saved 255,000 lives in the US since 1975, so keep your family safe! Buckle-up!
